On Oct. 21, 2015, industry insiders gathered together at Westland Distillery in Seattle to celebrate the finalists and winners of Northwest Meetings + Events fifth annual Best of the Northwest awards. The event was sponsored by Butler Seattle, Ketchikan Visitors Bureau, Meydenbauer Center and Salem Convention Center. Event partners were Alabastro Photography, Blue Danube Productions, Herban Feast, Lisa Dupar Catering, PJ Hummel & Co., Wave Link Music, Inc., and Westland Distillery.

This past May, the Emerging Sales Professionals Association (ESPA)—a Washington state nonprofit corporation that provides professional development training for sales staff from publicly owned convention and meeting venues—held its sixth Emerging Sales Professionals Symposium, ESP6, at Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, Washington. ESPA members include sales professionals at all levels from convention and meeting venues in Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. The association organizes educational programs each fall and spring.

 

Northwest Meetings + Events was proud to sponsor the 2017 Cascadia Educational Conference this year. The event took place at Wildhorse Resort & Casino in Pendleton, Oregon, and drew approximately 220 industry leaders. The popular conference brought together members of the Meeting Professionals International chapters of Oregon, Washington state and British Columbia, and featured locally inspired experiences like a hoe-down themed gala and an opening prayer by members of the Confederated Tribes of Umatilla.
